Whether touring the Rooms museum + art gallery or just looking for a great meal in St. John's, I'd highly recommend The Rooms Cafe. I've eaten lunch and brunch here and also just stopped in for a cup of tea - no matter what you choose from the menu, you'll appreciate the wide beautiful view of downtown St. John's and the harbour. Customer service here is great, although this spot does get very busy, especially on weekends.

This restaurant is inside a museum and sits high above the town of St. John's. Such a great locale. The menu offered many unique options like a Lamb Burger and Cod Tongue. The food was tasty and the view made it even better.

Stopped in for a light lunch. Enjoyed the best view of the harbour and very good food too. The seafood chowder was a meal in itself and very nicely prepared. The salt cod cakes were served with a mustard seed aioli sauce and a mixed green salad. There were 3 fish cakes and they were very good. The service was friendly and efficient. In addition to the standard menu they also offer a more limited organic menu. Well worth the visit.

This lunchroom has the best view in St. John's. The food is excellent and worth the price. I have had lunch and coffee and dessert at the Rooms. All the food and the service were excellent. Plan to eat here if you visit The Rooms.

I've had coffee here a few times, but didn't realize it was a full-blown restaurant! It was packed lunchtime, and everyone wants a window seat. Lovely view on a sunny winter day! The service was prompt, and the food was spectacular! I had the spinach pie (vegetarian) and sticky pudding for dessert - scrumptious! Can't wait to go back there.
